Charlotte Broussard, owner of Universal Window and Door, was honored last week as a 2014 “Outstanding Woman in Business” by the Worcester Business Journal.

According to a release, Broussard was recognized for her leadership and contributions in the Central Massachusetts business community, having purchased the company in 2001 and guiding it through a series of technological improvements that led to the firm being honored with other awards. She was also recognized for “preserving the livelihoods of the company’s 100 employees,” as well as those of the small vendors that supplied the manufacturer with materials used in the production of the windows.

“I accepted this award on behalf of the employees of Universal, because without their creativity, persistence, determination, and innovation, there would be no Universal Window and Door today,” says Broussard. “This award is a tribute to their hard work and determination in the face of adversity.”

For Tony Muraco, president and CEO, Broussard’s recognition didn’t come as a surprise.

“We at Universal are so proud of Charlotte for being recognized as an Outstanding Woman in Business,” he says. “She is so deserving of this award and has worked arduously to position the company for growth in a very competitive environment.”

Broussard was profiled in the October 27 issue of the Worcester Business Journal and was honored at an awards celebration on November 14 at Tuckerman’s Hall in Worcester.
